, that was pretty much a reference to paul ryan to mitt romney's comments on the 47%. >> paul ryan had a various generous tweet saying we're with the president today. i congratulate him on the day of the second inauguration. >> today. what happens tomorrow? >> this president is telling us, he is expecting four years of war with republicans but he doesn't care about that to ensure his legacy. that is almost irrelevant. he thinks the biggest problem in america is not our lack of economic growth, that we're facing decline and bankruptcy. our biggest quality is equality. the lack of social justice and he will address that. he will leave office four years from now not a hero like reagan who turned the country around but a hero like martin luther king who took up and said the equality belongs to everybody in this country. black americans, hispanic americans, women, those who are disadvantaged. that's my mission. and guess what, even if the country is broke, i don't need money for that. that's a moral movement i can lead and get on mt. rushmore. so i think if you ask most americans what the biggest pro
of programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. but directly rebuking paul ryan and the 47% comment that got mitt romney in trouble. there may have been high arching philosophical tones but there were also those tones. >> are you embracing the 47% comment? >> no, no, i wouldn't say, i don't know if it is fair to say it wasn't partisan at all. >> this was not a speech where he stood up and said my mission is to leave office like a ronald reagan, being the president who turned around an economy, restored the confidence of a nation in its place in the world. no. he turned inward. and he said my mission here is to pick up the legacy of martin luther king and expand it as i think you've noted. that's not something he needs to work with republicans in congress for. it is something he doesn't need money for, by the way. it is, you're right, a moral agenda. but it is a very left of center argument that he made today about government. and republicans are going to go after him on that. this was a warrior president today. >> there was a more aggressive tone, you might say. let's play another moment fro
. between now and april when paul ryan unveils his budget. you are boeing going to see hig for his cuts. they want him to take the lead when it comes to reform. >> you heard president obama yesterday. i dare say he does not want spending caughts and i dare say he would be happy to see in reverses in government spending. so that does not jive with what the house is doing. >> that is a fair point. some critics say inside of the house conference there is a real fight. they want to take these bold stances on the ten year balanced budget so they can get some leverage to fund the government when it comes up for a vote in a couple of week. >> no, i think they are doing the lord's work. thank you very much. we have a couple of special guests to tell us more. democrat from vermont, shawn duffy, republican from wisconsin. to both of you gentlemen friends of this show i wish you a happy new year. mr. boehner attached a bublg et to this. >> there are no specific cuts. where in medicare or the pentagon are they going to cut? they have to specify that before you can have a serious conversation. i don
's future. >> stephanie: yeah, paul ryan had a very bad day yesterday. because it was a reputation of all of those ideas about the social safety nets and -- yeah. the president again. >> obama: the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security. these things do not zap our initiatives. they strengthen us. [ cheers and applause ] >> obama: they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> stephanie: boo-yaw. >> what about support. >> stephanie: i have a serious and thoughtful plan. [ laughter ] >> can i sit at the big table? >> stephanie: we have to get serious about the safety nets. yeah, i would give anything to see what was in the thought bubble. >> yeah. bzzzzzzz. >> stephanie: yeah because that was a boo-yaw, because that was their whole argument. >> yeah. >> stephanie: we're moochers we're 47%. >> no wander mittens didn't show. that makes me feel bad about myself. i felt an emotion. what was that. [ mocking laughter ] >> normally my indifference is exactly the right height. [ moc
. >> the gathering of gop luminaries, top conservative congressman eric cantor, paul ryan, senate power brokers jim demint, jon kyl, tom coburn, event organizer frank luntz. >> they decided that they needed to begin to fight obama on everything. this meant unyielding opposition to every one of the obama administration's legislative initiatives. they all talked about this and they began to get more and more optimistic and they left feeling practically exuberant. >> count, count them ten official inaugural ball. >> stunning crowd of people. >> the new president had no idea what the republicans were planning. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states and first lady. >> surrounded by supporters at the inaugural balls, the mood was hopeful. ♪ at last my love ♪ >> didn't have a full sense of what washington was going to be like for him. he had not been in the middle of these kind of down and dirty fights. the ugly reality of governing in washington today. >> that really did end up being a hallmark of president obama's first term in office, right, what happened that first night, that
in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets. >> if you've seen a single republican say they support that -- >> a democratic lobbyist last night work
of they are retreat in williamsburg where paul ryan and others were basically indicating that they can't win this battle. >> the president's press conference, the ball in your court press conference, this is the republicans hitting the ball back over the met saying it's now in your court. we should see. can i make one other quick note? i want a whole andrea mitchell reports on old andrea mitchell footage of presidential interviews and inaugurations. that is a ratings bonanza. >> you are going to see that today, so just stay with us. >> with no shame for all of those old hairstyles as well. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> see you later. >>> a huge team, of course, has been working overtime on the inaugural weekend plans leading up to president obama taking the oath of office. stephanie cutter chairs the inaugural committee board of directors and joins me now. thank you very much. wow. you have coming right out of the campaign you have taken this on. this is the most complicated management project. first of all, let's talk about the day of service on saturday. that's to some of us the mo

, was basically a direct rebuke to congressman paul ryan, who was mitt romney's running mate. so the republicans have lots to bicker with, lots to single out in the president's inauguration speech, including the president didn't write it with the thinking of this is going to be a reach across the aisle type of message. >> yeah, obviously a very clear choice he made. let me play for you what senator tom coburn just said on "morning joe." >> i think he missed some opportunities to pull the country together, but a lot of his words were good words for the country to hear. i think he missed a big opportunity to require the responsibility of this wonderful freedom we have that's going to require all of us to have some sacrifice. >> he didn't say shared sacrifice, although he did say we must make the hard choices. he talked about reducing the cost of health care, the size of the deficit. the focus, it seemed to me, if there was an overriding theme, it was on equality, including fixing income inequality. how did you see it? >> i mean, the section on deficits, health care, entitlements, was a really fasc
at jay-z and paul ryan. beyonce and paul, just don't get this together. only in america. >> i want to ask you guys a little bit about the idea of a political speech or policy speech, i heard it, too, when he talked about that we cannot mistake absolutism for principle, it seemed like he was speaking to house republican, am i right? >> as i said he went after them on the takers, the absolutism made the point we have to act now. >> amazing shot there in the rotunda of the capital. thank you very much, mark, as they head in to do ceremonial work and signing, the president and vice president. i'm sorry, david. >> i was just saying he will have discussion now in the country. i think it's good. i think he's learned and frankly over the four years he taking by force of personality he could be a transcending force. he's learned he can't be. he's picked a team, that team is innate to him and he's made i thought an extremely eloquent speech for that side. so i think could in some way an opening for a more honest discussion about what the country should be. >> anyone surprised by the speci
but not rule out legal status for those who enter the country illegally. representative paul ryan has already endorsed rubio's plan. legislators find 39 states are not considering new gun regulations and some may relax their gun laws. having more guns available for self-defense may curb gun violence. >>> the "washington post." clarence thomas broke a 7-year silence during oral arguments. what he was saying was unclear. sources say he was joking about the ivy league and the k transcript only partially showed what he said. he hasn't spoken since 1996. >>> walmart plans to hire any veteran who wants a job and officials project it will lead to 100,000 veterans in five years. >> that's a promise, significant. >> great news. also really quickly again, we want to show while we're doing the papers, the daily news, nra, coming up on the anniversary of newtown, where 20 young children were killed, has put out an app that 4 year-olds can use four years old and up, shoot at targets that are shaped like coffins. >> so get your app. let's go to willie at "politico "politico." >>> chief white house correspo
. >> lester, while you were talking, the picture we're looking at now, paul ryan exiting behind jay-z. mitt romney we're told is at home with his wife, ann, in lahoya, california. someone close to them said they did not believe he would be watching today. but paul ryan must be thinking about what a long, strange trip it's been the last couple of months. andrea mitchell, how was the view different from your location? >> well, as you know, often who is challenging the ban on gay rights prop 8. and i was really -- you know, you've talked about the other issues that were addressed in the speech, the substantive issues about medicare, medicaid, entitlements, climate change, the other policies. i was really struck by his saying that we will not all be free. you know, he mentioned stonew l stonewall. that was the horrible riot in new york city in greenwich village against gay rights. he said our journey will not be complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated equally under the law. so that, to me, was another unprecedented mention in an inaugural address. brian. >> and let's go inside
of you worked with paul ryan, if he runs will you join? guest: that is something the top man decides. caller: i was wondering, is the president going to have any proposals to introduce a set of programs to move people from the social service programs to the workforce? host: thanks for the call. we know we'll hear more detail for state of the union address. let's take his point and broaden it a little bit. will this lay the ground work for what we will get for the state of the union address? guest: i think you will hear more specifics at the state of the union. tomorrow you may hear broad outlines for things like a balanced approach to our budget and to the economy. also taking measures to get more people working and off of public assistance. you will hear broad themes about that but the details will come later. host: do you agree? guest: yeah. host: let's go to the republican line from ohio. caller: yes, sir. i just have a comment i want to make. i hope when president obama takes his oath to office that he takes the oath literally and not hypocritically. i'm an n.r.a. member. it does
eight, paul ryan took a shot at it to his political peril, it was used against him when he was running for the white house. these politicians, they don't really have the spine for taking a shot at these very, very controversial so-called third rail issues and yet you can see the american people want them to, bill. bill: yeah, i think the other number that i find striking today, four years ago unemployment in the u.s. was 7.8%. and four years later on this very day it is also 7.8% as we see the first family now leave the white house, and again make the procession up to capitol hill. yet, i'm not quite sure how much that will be addressed in terms of the inaugural speech today. it may be brushed with more, perhaps a thematic theme than specific. megyn: you can't imagine he will talk about the unemployment rate which obviously isn't very good in this country and is expected now to stay at at least 7% through 2014. president obama promised if we passed the stimulus we would be no higher than 8%, of course we went up to 10%, now we are still hovering in the high single digits. we are told t
beyonce to turn around and talk to paul ryan i can hardly stand it. you just saw beyonce and debbie stabenow that might be the best couple of the day. oh, please. >> i think she is delightful. she really is delightful. i'll tell you. very self-aware. >> you can imagine she doesn't sing the national anthem every day. i mean, this was an unusual assignment for her in this venue, and this is the last thing you want to make a mistake on, and professionally you want to be right on top of your game, so i would imagine she probably felt a little extra pressure there today. >> i have always thought it was a measure of the civic ambition of us as a democracy that we made our national anthem so hard to sing. >> it's a great picture there. >> you know what i'm saying? >> the rotunda there. let's bring in michael steel, the former chairman of the republican party and our pal here at msnbc who is willing to talk to me even when other republicans won't. mr. chairman, i have to ask you, not just about the speech specifically, but about this day and the president has taken pains to say this is abou
one of those shots that you will not see too often. beyoncÉ and paul ryan. we will just leave it at that. just maybe one of those that i am the only one on the planet that makes a big deal about this. all right, going into the hall. the vice president and the president. they have a new lease on life. which at thing, what can we make of that term but we just got word from mitch o'connell that we plan to work with the president and trust he will work with us. >> the problem is you have two very different problems. there are still about $1.2 trillion left in tax revenue that the president wanted to go after. they only got about 600 billion. he did allude to rewriting the tax code. something that perhaps democrats and republicans have been talking about doing. two very different approaches on how to do that. there is a sense of togetherness, neil, that tends to go away when you get back into governing. now, that continues to roll into governing the country. it is not easy. neil: it is very clear that this president has the support of the american people, although, his popularity i
and majority leader erick kanter, who have ceremonial roles, will attend. as well representative paul ryan, who probably envisioned the inauguration much differently months ago when he was part of the republican presidential ticket. it is my obligation, ryan said at a republican retreat. a republican of tennessee, a member of the joined congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies said that it is about the peaceful transition or reaffirmation of power. this is the 57th time the the president of the u.s. has been sworn in, and it has always been done without a mall, without insurrection, without a coup. that is why, whether you voted for mitt romney or barack obama, americans will stop and watch the inauguration and celebrate tradition. even so, republicans will stay awake and will lead democrats revel in their absence. but if you are an elected leader, you have to be there, said a republican strategist. otherwise you would probably want to get out of town, three- day weekend and all. jackson is in louisville, kentucky, independent line. you are on c-span. caller: good morning. i would just l
, virginia, with the house caucus last week when paul ryan feared the party and the more radical elements of the tea party which supported him to some sort of compromise short term, at least, on the debt ceiling. >> was it compromise or just a strategy to move a bigger fight down the road? >> i think it's an indication, a telltale sign about where the republicans are. four years ago, when the president was making that speech, republicans were meeting at night. >> exactly. >> deciding how to defeat him when he won for re-election. they lost that, big time. he had a very robust electoral victory and significant popular vote victory. now the republicans are in disarray, trying to organize their party so they have a future. and they're going to have to deal with the reality of that as well. it is a party that is so broken into a lot of parts on the gop side and there's going to have to be a lot of mending down and more outreach as well. >> couple of key areas. the president has focused on energy independence. people close to him say that could be an unlikely bipartisan legacy for president ob
jay-z and paul ryan. i don't know under what circumstances you would ever have those men in the same frame. but jay-z with beyonce, of course, and paul ryan the republican nominee for vice president. this is a live picture of the president proceeding through the capitol. he's headed to a lunch, the traditional lunch proceeding under the great dome of the capitol. the 150th anniversary of the completion of the dome is this year. a dome built during the civil war. a symbol of the unity of the nation. the president's proceeding in to that lunch now. there was a moment that occurred on the west front, just after all of this was wrapped up, after the national anthem was sung, and the president had something to say. and we wanted to show that to you. >> the president taking one last look at this view. he wanted to stop and linger and see it, record it so that he would never forget his last opportunity to look down the national mall toward the washington monument and the lincoln memorial, to see the crowd who came to hear him deliver his inaugural speech. byron pitts is down in that crowd r
, paul ryan in his vice-presidential speech and in other places pointed out that barack obama gave a speech in janesville, wisconsin gm plant and said we're going to keep this open for a hundred years with the auto bailout and they closed it started making those cars in china. i'd like to also point out that china, by the way, the media fact checkers found that to be a lie, too, they sided with obama on that and romney-ryan was correct on that as well. >> steve: sure. >> i'd like to point out that 55% of gm's increased production in china by 55% since the bailout and make seven out of ten cars outside the united states. so it's a good thing we did this 83 billion dollar auto bailout for american jobs. >> steve: sure, but you know, a big part of the president's face are auto union workers, they hear, hey, they're going to ship a bunch of car manufacturing jobs out to china, oh, wait a minute, i don't like that idea. so you've got a fact checking organization that came in and said that's the lie of the year. why would a fact checking organization say something like that. you would th
